Synopsis: ‘Black City Nights’ is the third single from LA-based project Always You’s forthcoming second album, Bloom Off The Rose. Brothers, Anton and Christoph Hochheim, formerly known as Ablebody, wanted to create an album that reflected change, discovery and romance. The new track fits within that theming with Christoph saying: “‘Black City Nights’ is a song for the disheveled and defeated, a vivid depiction of long sleepless nights, chasing ghosts of one’s past and future, lost bets, and blind optimism that the next big break is just around the corner. It’s about loneliness and what people do to escape it, as well as the hopefulness that keeps us pushing through.”
